From the manufacturer
Founded in 1990 by roboticists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, iRobot is THE robot company. For more than twenty years, our focus has been to provide robots that empower people to do more – whether that's in defense and security, telepresence communication or in the home.
iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets and Allergies
The iRobot Roomba 780 vacuum cleaning robot removes up to 98% of dirt, dust and pet hair – on its own – at the touch of a button. Using iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology, the robot thoroughly vacuums the entire floor, including hard-to-reach spots under furniture.
3-Stage Cleaning with AeroVac Series 2 – Roomba 780 picks up an amazing amount of dirt, pet hair and other debris with its patented 3-stage cleaning system. A spinning side brush cleans along wall edges, counter-rotating brushes act like a dustpan and broom, and a powerful AeroVac Series 2 vacuum pulls dirt, hair, and debris off the brushes to the back of the bin. Roomba 780 uses a new advanced cleaning head which provides superior performance for picking up pet hair, dirt, dust and more.
iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology – iAdapt is iRobot’s advanced system of software and sensors that allows Roomba to clean more of your room, more thoroughly. It ensures Roomba vacuums every section of your room multiple times, cleaning areas you can’t easily reach including under furniture, around everyday obstacles, and along walls. It even avoids stairs and drop-offs, navigates past soft barriers such as couch skirts, recognizes cords and carpet fringe, and self-adjusts to clean hardwood, carpet, and linoleum.
Long-lasting battery – The robot uses sophisticated power management software that results in 50% longer battery life than previous Roomba generations, ensuring hundreds of cleaning cycles under proper use.
Cliff detecting technology prevents your Roomba from falling down stairs
Control Roomba by infrared remote without getting up
Roomba can be scheduled to perform up to seven cleaning sessions per week
Virtual Wall Lighthouses use infrared beams to block Roomba from entering off-limit areas

1)Is a Roomba right for me?
2)Should I go for the 780 over the 760 or 770?
Let me address question (1) first: Is the Roomba right for me? My thoughts on the Roomba are this. It is a great little automatic vacuum/duster but it isn't perfect. Here are the pros and cons as I see them:
* It's an automated vacuum. Seriously, how awesome is that? Who wants to spend a morning vacuuming when they can just let loose the tiny 'bot and go do other things? Not me.
* Adaptive logic. The brain behind how it gets every space covered.
* Programmable. iRobot encourages tech-heads to program their Roombas to get the most out of it though I haven't and I don't think it is essential.
* Date and time functions. You can program when you want the little bot to run it's cleaning cycle.
* Small dust bin. The dust bin was reading full after vacuuming one small carpeted room before even completing its cleaning cycle.
* Not really truly set and forget - just like regular vacuuming, you need to prepare the room. Think of the things you normally move around when vacuuming so you can get behind furniture or other objects. You need to pre-move everything. Do doors stay open so the Roomba can go from room to room or do you close them to get behind them and set the Roomba in each room individually?
* Lots of maintenance - it says you need to de-hairs the sweeper rollers after every 3 - THREE - uses. Is that something you normally do for your big vac?
* Small replaceable filters - no bag means the filters will get dirtier faster and will need to be replaced more often.
* Deep cleaning - I guess I just don't see the little vac giving that "deep" clean that a full size unit can deliver.
For me, I use my Roomba as a excellent little automated duster for our hard floors. It really helps in keeping those pesky dust bunnies in check though I still need to get the swiffer out to get underneath dressers and such.
The 780 is truly gorgeous. With the touch controls and finish it looks as good as any Apple product IMHO, a beautiful complement to any modern deco home.
780 vs 770 vs. 760.
All have HEPA filters and the same cleaning mechanism. The 770 and 780 have improved dust detection through added sensors and the 780 inlcudes 2 light towers to help with room to room navigation and touch controls versus buttons. Additionally my 780 came with cleaning tools for the spin brush and rollers as well as an extra set of rollers/spin brush and hepa filters.
The Roomba is a great added tool to keeping my house clean but I am not sure I could rely on it alone to get the job done.
Usage update: I've found that if I leave the Roomba unused for an extended period of time, say 2 weeks, then I run the risk of having to reset the unit. This is just weird and possibly a software glitch which I'm not sure of how to update.
Secondly, and neat way to prolong the life of those mini-filters? I vacuum them with my big vac and bang, they're back looking fresh.
The virtual light-house units included with the 780 are FANTASTIC. I have my apartment divided into 3 sections and the lighthouses insure each area gets totally clean and nothing skipped. One thing I do have to say is the instructions provided with the unit and not very good. Do yourself a favor and Google "Virtual lighthouse placement" The first or second result there will explain how to use them perfectly! Also I would recommend taping down or otherwise attaching the virtual wall units and the home base to the floor. The Roomba can sometimes bump into them and knock them out of place.
Unit is very quiet. You can still watch TV with the volume up a bit and it doesn't seem to bother my downstairs neighbors.
A few minor issues which are the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5
1. Roomba is not a green device. LED lights on the unit never turn off and there is a constant draw of about 4 watts even when not changing. (measured with a kill-a-watt meter) This is really nothing but I find it annoying that there is no way to turn off the lights at least when it's not in use.
2. The "Clean" stop/start button is located on the top of the unit and is not recessed. I had an issue several times when my Roomba would make its way under my coffee table and press into the button turning itself off. I fixed this by attaching a small piece of wood to the bottom of the table where it was hitting, but really I see this as bad design.
3. There is a serial port on the unit but it's really only for unsupported modifications or diag by iRobot. Would be nice if there was the ability to update software/firmware if necessary in the future to add or improve features.
